OR maybe next time you can pick an operating system that isn't a temperamental bitch to program for ?

This is the problem with the Uploader when it comes to Mac users.

On some versions of MacOSX, the latest version of Java that you can install is NOT the latest version of Java that exists. We compiled the Uploader for the latest version of Java available on Windows and Linux machines, unfortunately this makes the Uploader incompatible with some MacOSX machines because the latest version of Java does not exist. This is not something that is in our control at this point, it is a limitation of the Java implementation on MacOSX.

If you are on a Mac and still experiencing troubles, shoot me an email and I'll see if we can come up with a solution for you.

So I guess I won't be uploading my final for consideration (Not that I would have won anyway) I have the latest version of JAVA installed. All my family and friends use Macs. I've never had a problem with FTP.

Good luck to those who can.

Apple has been criticized for not including Java 1.6 into Leopard. The current default is Java 1.5 when all the other platforms (Windows, Linux, Solaris etc) have access to Java 1.6... The only beta that is available for mac to run Java 1.6 only works on Intel based macs. You missed the cutoff if you have anything under OSX 10.5. If you have 10.5 and up and are on the newer intel mac you can register with this site and download the update. I'm out of luck because my computer is two years old.

Thanks for the info Cory. I think that clarifies things a little for everybody.

As I have stated before, if you are running OSX and cannot use the Uploader, and cannot find/borrow/steal a Windows/Linux PC to run the Uploader, shoot me an email and I'll sort out a solution for you.

whats so difficult about ftp? with the second last challenge I had only problems with the uploader, i dont install java engines because they are an added security risk.
Just allow ftp for the people who do get it, and dont want to compromise theire computers.

At what point are people compromising their computers ?

FTP isn't going to happen. Its the Uploader or nothing at this point.

server failure?

Dear CG Society!

I'm unable to enter the challenge page... or the "submit entry" page... since today morning...

Is there some kind of a server failure in the european region?
I'm sure it will be okay later on, but the problem is that I cannot see the deadline for the images category neither, because it's only available on the "submit entry" site....

I have the same problem since this morning,and I'm in European region too.Did servers overload or something like that happened? If this problem won't fix within the image submission time limit(5.5 days)what will happen to those who can't upload their final submissions??? If there'll be such thing,would you consider to give extra days to those who can't submit their works due to server errors??? Thanks for this wonderful challenge

I'm getting the same problem, and I'm in the US. Can't get to the entry page, and the Uploader times out and when it finally opens I can't get it to select a category or anything. I'm sure this will be fixed soon, but I did want to upload my latest to get some crits :\

We're experiencing server issues across multiple systems at the moment, so its possible that you will be encounter problems when submitting or viewing pieces.

If the server is not fixed by the Image submission deadline then we will have to push the deadline back a bit, but while there are still a few days to go the deadline stands as it is.
